Picked this up yesterday as I wanted to blast a new game other than the masses of 3rd person or 1st person games around at the minute.... I know the series well as the original kept me from doing my homework back in the mid 90's lol and I still play Yuri's Revenge now & again, jus cus its awsome!
I'm very happy to say that this latest Red Alert is extremely faithful to the original games and the style and feel of the game is spot on! i've seen people complaining about the graphics and acting but the graphics are great!, no slowdown, explosions and character animations are very nice and the water effects are brilliant!, best water iv seen in a RTS.. the acting is poor and lame but its supposed to be that way, it always has been.. The control system is easy to get to grips with, i didnt take the tutorial and within 2 levels i felt confident using the interface and was using special abilities and building etc (if u think this interface is tough try Supreme Commander on 360 lol)
To sum this 1 up I think for £25 you really cant go wrong, its fast and fun with crazy units, nice levels and story and an awsome soundtrack (again very faithful to the original series)... Great game, looking forward to getting home so I can play it some more
